Right by the house we take a small trail on the reminants of the Atlantic forest to a gazebo where we enjoy a super view
Hello all:

Thanks for the feed back many of you sent on the pictures I took of Morros (Hills). It inspired me to send a few more words about it and pictures.

Morros is a place of incredible natural beauty. The coconut trees reach to the sky, their leaves dancing with the soft blow of the gentle breeze. The blue ocean caresses the white sand or smash against the tough rocks, in a contrasting pattern. The tide brings the rolling waves to our feet, and takes them away in a repetitious cycle. I lay in the hammock, peacefully watching nature’s wonders effortlessly spreading serenity. What an incredible place. To have the perfect scenario for relaxation, meditation or nothingness, one just needs to be here and let it all be.

How lucky I’ve been to be able to take time off and come here on vacation for almost 2 decades. Morros belongs to my sister’s husband and his family. The secluded beach and the coconut plantation is located less than 2 hours from the city of Maceio. We cross a river, fishing villages, and sugar cane plantations to find this jewel kissed by the Atlantic Ocean.

Running against the wind, towards no particular destination, I loose my thoughts to "nothingness". Just the here and now is present. No planning, no measuring, no looking back or forward. Taking in deep, yet gentle breaths lifts my spirit, soothes my soul. I feel blessed and thankful.

I enjoy 100% of my time here, particularly since I am aware that reality awaits tomorrow.

Be well.

Very peculiar to this beach, these rocks aren't found anywhere around.

Garbage to shore: Sign of the lack of sanitation, and education, from small cities along the river. I even found a syringe with needle and blood!!!!
